We have success...


We have achieved greenhouse success!  I am including some photos of my bounty.  My goal is to make salsa this weekend.  Thank you my good friend Jody for the recipe.  I also want to give a thank you to Susan at "My Mother's Apron Strings!"  I made your chocolate pumpkin cake as a birthday cake for one of my teachers.  It got rave reviews!  It has been a plentiful summer here.  Have been making jam, wine, fruit roll ups, harvesting seeds, and overall keeping pretty busy.  Sorry if I haven't been able to keep up with everyone's blogs.  I've been kept on my toes.

My flourishing greenhouse, beehives, and berry beds.

If you look hard you can see a pumpkin, sweetcorn, and my tomatoes.

itty bitty turnips (I just like to eat the leaves)
This is Kelly's 'Sassy Saskatoon' wine.  Made out of our serviceberries.  I used the berry pulp to make fruit roll ups.  That didn't turn out too bad.

  2. A dear friend gave me her family's salsa recipe and seeing your beautiful tomatoes and peppers makes my mouth water for some! Thank you for the review--it's one of my favorite cakes too (for so many reasons!) XOXO

  3. wow, it looks like you have a bountiful garden. you may need an addition on that greenhouse!!!

  4. Everything looks great!! I agree that you may need an addition to that greenhouse--something tells me that the zucchini wants his own room! :-)

  5. I am so impressed with your garden. I also am impressed with your skill at making this garden into something you will enjoy over the winter. B
